Key Notes of La Vie est Belle

What Does La Vie est Belle Smell Like

From the first whiff, La Vie est Belle by Lancôme reveals a fresh, fruity and tart aroma, with strong hints of orange and pear. The delicious scent of bergamot, combined with a subtle spiciness from pink pepper, adds an immediate zest to the perfume. However, there's a slight hint of blackcurrant bud which is almost imperceptibl, lending just the smallest hint of sweetness.

Then the perfume develops into its heart notes, where the scent transforms into a complex blend of floral and nutty aromas. The dominant note of hazelnut creates a rich, warm and sweet gourmand facet. This is beautifully intertwined with the powdery scent of iris pallida. The presence of the lavish aroma of jasmine sambac, orange blossom and tuberose give the perfume a blooming floral character while a touch of ylang-ylang barely traces in the background.

As the perfume settles, it reveals its base notes which are more earthy and sweet. The presence of benzoin imparts a caramel-like sweetness that's nicely balanced with the earthy notes of patchouli. Lastly, the hint of tonka bean leaves a lingering scent that's both sweet and slightly bitter, creating a captivating finale to this beautiful fragrance.

Review of La Vie est Belle

La Vie est Belle by Lancôme is a perfume that exudes both sweetness and sophistication, making it a delightful choice for women who enjoy a scent with a certain depth. Released in 2015, this Eau de Parfum Intense is a rich blend of sweet, floral, gourmand, and powdery notes, which work in harmony to create a perfume that's as complex as it is appealing.

The perfume opens up with a burst of vibrant orange and pear, providing a fruity freshness that's immediately inviting. As it wears on the skin, the heart notes of hazelnut and iris pallida come into play, adding a nutty richness that's both unexpected and delightful. Finally, the base notes of benzoin and patchouli leave a lasting impression that's warm and comforting.

Despite its complexity, La Vie est Belle manages to maintain a sense of balance. It's a perfume that's perfect for the colder months of fall and winter, offering a heartwarming scent that's perfect for those cosy evening gatherings or lively nights out. However, its charm is not limited to these occasions alone. It can also be worn to leisure activities or even in daily routines, adding a touch of luxury to the everyday.

Though predominantly adored by mature women, its sweetness attracts a younger demographic too. A slight drawback could be its intensity, which might not appeal to those who prefer lighter, fresher fragrances. Yet, for those who appreciate a full-bodied perfume with a lasting sillage, La Vie est Belle is certainly worth the investment.
